Environmental Analysis Reflected Glare (PDF 1MB)

AUTHOR   Stefanie Talarico, Building Physics + Sustainability Engineer

In this case study on Reflected Glare, Stefanie Talarico outlines how reflected glare from a commercial tower to nearby roads was assessed against a veiling luminance performance criterion, to support Local Town Planning requirements. Following the assessment, Inhabit’s Building Physics + Sustainability team considered mitigation measures such as alternative glazing reflectivity properties, or manipulating the architectural form in the causal zone to reduce glare reflected onto nearby roads.
